THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACREBy RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies
Netflix has finally released the trailer for their upcoming sequel to Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Following the tragic new trend of movies, this entry is a direct sequel to the original Tobe Hooper classic and is written and produced by Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues.
The new trailer seems to borrow more from the 2003 remake than the original. It has the same aesthetics. I am kinda disappointed they didn’t attempt to go with the grimy look of the original film. However, we do get a Poulan 306a chainsaw like the original.
Not only do we get a new trailer, but we also the official synopsis:
“Melody (Sarah Yarkin), her teenage sister Lila (Elsie Fisher), and their friends Dante (Jacob Latimore) and Ruth (Nell Hudson), head to the remote town of Harlow, Texas to start an idealistic new business venture. But their dream soon turns into a waking nightmare when they accidentally disrupt the home of Leatherface, the deranged serial killer whose blood-soaked legacy continues to haunt the area’s residents—including Sally Hardesty (Olwen Fouéré), the sole survivor of his infamous 1973 massacre who’s hell-bent on seeking revenge.”
Although I am excited about a new movie, I am also disappointed they are continuing the same fad of naming movies the same as the original. And let's not even speak about how erasing the sequels are terrible. Except for Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation. That is a weird, untrackable dumpster fire that makes no sense (but does have some great moments).
Without further ado, let's check out the trailer.
